STAFF REPORT

Following a well attended public session about the Springtown Mall redevelopment on Feb. 27, San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz has scheduled two more for next week.

The next session will be held on March 7 from 2-4 p.m. at Mariposa Apartment Homes, 2600 Hunter Road. Another session will take place on March 9 at 6 p.m. at the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 East Hopkins Street.

“The first session last week attracted lots of interest,” Narvaiz said. “I am pleased that our citizens are engaged in these important issues and care about the city council’s goals to strengthen economic development and job creation in our community.”

The Feb. 27 session filled the San Marcos city council chamber.

The city is considering $2.5 million in incentives for the redevelopment of Sprintown Mall, including an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in the old Best Buy building.

The additional briefings will include information on past economic development initiatives, what redevelopment involves and Springtown Mall proposals.

The meetings have been posted by the city clerk for a potential city council quorum. No action will be taken at the sessions.
